About Coaching

Life Coaching with Coach Carrie

Life Coaching is the craft of engaging with you in pursuit of your desired goals and dreams by providing personalized support and challenge. As a life coach, I work to help you set goals and keep you on track for personal and professional success. I support you in expressing your goals and dreams, clarifying your choices, and creating  “winnable” game plans to reach your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can a Life Coach help me?

You are in the driver’s seat – you chose which direction our coaching will go.  I partner with you by being a judgment-free listener, challenger of current thought processes, objective sounding board and co-creator of your future self.  I help you break through old fears and barriers to develop new practices and beliefs so that you can live the life you want, both professionally and in your personal life.

How do I know if I am ready for Life Coaching?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you willing to invest in yourself and your future?
  • Are you feeling stuck and don’t know how to get un-stuck?
  • Are you living the life you want to live?
  • Are you willing to take responsibility for your own growth?
  • Are you ready to win your games of life?
  • Do you need support to reach forward?
  • Are you willing to work hard to change your current circumstances?
  • Are you open to trying new and different things?
  • Will you allow yourself to be pushed outside your comfort zone?

If the answers to these questions are YES, then you are ready for Life Coaching!

How Does Life Coaching Differ from Therapy?

A therapist helps by dealing with old wounds, focusing on issues from the past, and dealing with personal problems that need to be analyzed and solved.

The life coach is a mentor and guide. Coaches focus on the present and work with individuals to make their dreams and goals come true now with accountability and assignments co-designed by the coach and the client.  Life coaching is not about fixing a problem, but rather helping an individual get out of their comfort zone and live their life more fully now and in the future.

What About Confidentiality?

Everything we talk about is confidential and unless you tell someone that we are working together (or give me your express permission to do so) no one will know that we have spoken.

What are the settings in which you coach?

Phone:  I do much of my coaching work over the phone. Coaching over the phone is my preferred method because it allows you the flexibility to choose your environment. I also find that clients feel more free to open up and be authentic when we have a coaching session via  the phone. Coaching by phone also allows you to work with me regardless of the country, city or state in which you live.

Skype or Google+: Using Skype or Google+ is a great way to have a face- to-face coaching session without having to leave your office or home. Coaching by Skype or Google+ also allows you to work with me regardless of the country, city or state in which you live.

In-person:  I am happy to meet in-person with people who feel more comfortable meeting face-to-face. There may be a slight up-charge for travel time.

Coaching is all about you – so you get to decide which setting works best.

What areas do you specialize in?

You can focus on leadership, business, career, relationships, health or whatever is important to you. Regardless of the topic you choose, I will help you define and focus on what you want to achieve, provide support and challenge along the way and help you get better results while having more fun!  I welcome the opportunity to  coach clients in any part of life or career. I am best known for working in the following areas:

  • Emerging leader skill development: You are a rising leader wanting to truly master and sustain leadership skills.
  • Personal Environmental Design: You are serious about success.  How do you use the power of your personal environment to create the successful life you want.
  • Living through transitions: You are in a life, career or health transition and looking to come out on the other side in a winning position.
What Can I Expect From Life Coaching?

The most important thing is that YOU are ready to play and win the games of your life on your own terms. You will get out of coaching what you are willing to put into our sessions and co-created assignments.

While the coaching experience is different for each person, my clients report common experiences. They have a clearer vision of the life they want to live, they feel more self-aware, they are winning the games of life and they have more joy in their life. They are better able to reach forward and  navigate the daily demands of their jobs and home lives from a positive place.

What is Your Coaching Style?

As a coach, it is my goal to create a safe and judgement-free space in which you feel both supported and challenged to grow. My coaching style has been described as caring, insightful, supportive, positive, motivating and playful. I believe that in order for you to move forward, I must gently pull you out of your comfort zone.   I am there to celebrate successes and to support you toward achieving desired results.  She believes life is a journey and that we learn from how we win and grow from how we lose.

Who Benefits from Life Coaching?

My clients benefit from coaching because they are motivated and committed to playing their game of life better.  Just like successful sports players have great coaches, my clients want to win their life games and want supportive coaching along the way.
